Abstract: In thiswork, the effect of annealing temperature on the conductivity of solution-combustion-synthesized calcium vanadium oxide (CVO) films was studied. Conductivity was tailored by the appearance of the phases like CaVO3, CaV2O5 and Ca2V2O7 as a function of annealing temperature; CaVO3 and CaV2O5 are responsible for high conductivity, whereas V5+ presence in Ca2V2O7 contributes towards dielectric nature. Evolution of phases of CVO was identified through X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. A detailed conductivity measurement as a function of annealing temperature helps us to identify the decreasing trend of conductivity with increasing temperature up to 400 C; beyond this it behaves like an insulator. There was a stable conductivity while aging the films in ambient for a few days. This study revealed safe application temperature domain of CVO, and a clear correlation of electrical conductivity with the in-depth structural-compositional-morphological study.
